Check The Exterior
Have a look at the outside of your house, see if it looks old and lifeless. Sometimes, all it takes is a sexy new paint job to get your house looking better and brand new. Seriously, a family on my street had their house re-painted in white and it looked like it had just been built! You can deceive passers-by into thinking you’ve got a modern home!
Curtains & Carpets
There are two things in your house that can get out of date pretty quick. If you have curtains and carpets in your home, don’t be shocked when they start to look old. These are two things that not many people think about changing, so they have the same curtains and carpet for years. I remember when we moved into our family home, we had some god awful carpet and curtains. So, we changed them up, and they seemed new and fresh. But, a few years have passed, and now they look old again! My tip would be to look at your curtain design and see if it’s a little outdated. If it is, go for a change in design to something more modern. Or, switch things up completely and get blinds! In general, carpet can be a little old fashioned in most homes that are built today. So, you could think about changing to a different type of flooring. Of course, if you prefer carpet, there are some modern designs out there for your home. A change in curtains and carpets will leave your house feeling brand new.
Give It A Complete Clean
It’s no use adding lots of interior design improvements to your house if it’s a complete mess. If there’s one thing you notice in new homes, it’s that they’re sparklingly clean. The surfaces glisten and dust is nothing but a myth. So, give your home a complete clean from top to bottom, inside and out. You want to eradicate any dirt and stains. Get rid of all the dust and cobwebs, your house will be gleaming by the end. By doing this, you’ll notice an immediate effect. Any home that’s been thoroughly cleaned feels like it’s new again.

Find New Furniture
Again, like with curtains and carpets, the furniture in your home can feel old and lack style. A brand new sofa can really refresh a house and get it feeling new again. Or, find a new dining room table, something sleek and modern. You want to look for new furniture that wouldn’t look out of place in a brand new house being built today. Your rooms will look newer, and people will think your house is far younger than it actually is. Plus, new furniture brings with it that new furniture smell. This is a bit like a new car smell, but it fills up your house. It gets your home smelling new again!
